Let sanity prevail!

    Justman,

    [After all the people in the streets or at home are not at war,likewise the Parliament and it`s ministers are not at the front fighting the war,so why should the rest of the country function as normal?It does not stop extravagance and waste by the ministers and why should the people have to restrict their normal activities,political or otherwise? ]

    Good one.

    People must be heard. Waging an expensive and destructive war at the expense of the ordinary masses is insane and the sane people have a right to bring pressure on the govt to show transparency and accountability of the war.

    Is it more important to kill and destroy a part of Sri Lanka than listening to the cries of the poor? In Jaffna rice is sold at rs. 165/kilo, please stop and think, can a labourer who earns rs 150/day support his family?

    The leaders have cut themselves off from the ordinary man and his sufferings.

    A couple of days ago I hired an unskilled labourer and his young assistant to cut some branches off a tree. It was late in the PM. They were very happy because they could eat dinner, the only meal for the day... Instead of what they asked, I paid Rs.1100 because they could hardly buy a kilo of rice etc. with Rs.400

    I offered them tea and something to eat as well. and gave 2 pairs of Shorts as the older was almost half naked. At the end he said that he is nearing 50 years...and he dosn`t want to live more to suffer

    This is the actual situation in the country, for the majority.

    So-called leaders must come down from their ivory towers and see the actual situation in the country....

    Have we beaten the back streets of Bombay and Calcutta ???

    Very true. Most families live on one meal per day.

    ....But our so-called leaders can hardly move because of the fat. Their wives, particularly the `first lady`, are moving like models in Paris... what a shame !!!
